We are very proud to announce the formation of the New Jersey State Martial Arts Hall of Fame. New Jersey has had a boxing hall of fame since the 1960's and, in a similar sense, we hope to recognize and honor those involved in combat martial arts such as MMA and Muay Thai. New Jersey is building a rich tradition in non-boxing martial arts and our goal is to recognize these individuals and entities.
We are extremely excited to announce the inaugural awards dinner celebration. This gala event will take place on December 7, 2012, at the beautiful Crowne Plaza Meadowlands hotel complex.
Tickets to the awards dinner can be purchased by calling 201-538-4843 or online at NJ MMA Awards Tickets. Discount hotel room rates can be obtained by calling 877-227-6963 and mentioning Dead Serious allotted rooms.
Our voting committee has selected 2012's MMA fighter of the year, Thai fighter of the year, trainer of the year, school of the year, lifetime achievement award, legend award, and many others.
Our goal is to honor those involved with New Jersey martial arts and to celebrate with them, at an evening with family and friends. Our focus is on those directly involved in New Jersey martial arts.

We hope you will join us on December 7, 2012. So save the date! Mark your calendars now and purchase your tickets early so you can be sure to be a part of New Jersey martial arts history.
